THE ANNUNCIATION, CATALAN, XV CENTURY 




t is opportune that this year the Book of the Architectural Club should 
be devoted to Spain. For years the Iberian Peninsular was terra incognita 
to the architect and the student, and it was only during the Great War, and 
after, that it has been slowly revealing itself as one of the most stimulating 
countries in Europe. And not only in an aesthetic sense alone. As one 
comes to know Spain the realization dawns that here is indeed one of the 
most truly civilized countries in the world, where the people have an approxi- 
mate sense of comparative values ami where there exists a true democracy, 
a sane philosophy of life, a vital and evangelical religion and a real humani- 
tarianism that enters into all the relations of social life. 

In point of art of every kind it rivals Italy if it does not excel. Painting, 
music, poetry, the drama, every conceivable one of the so-called "industrial 
arts", here have achieved, and in some sense still do achieve, exalted emi- 
nence. As tor architecture, while the Classical monuments have vanished, 
except vast aqueducts here ami there, ami the incredible glories ami 
splendors of the Moorish occupation have been swept away, leaving only 
Cordova, Alhambra and Generalite as taint adumbrations of what once 
made the Peninsular the sequestered glory of the Dark Ages of Europe, the 
rest of the Christian work that remains is both infinite in variety and unique 
in its qualities of beauty ami personality. From the early Romanesque of 
the North, down through the Gothic Transition, the tull-fledged Gothic and 
the last phase where it blended in beauty with the early Renaissance that is 
utterly Spanish, the unfortunate episode of Herrera, into the wild and 
riotous "Restoration" period of the Plateresque and Chirruguera all is 
original, stimulating, revealing, and all is Spanish to the last ami most 
absolute degree, so vigorous, pervasive and consistently creative is the 
Spanish character blended of austerity ami magnificence, of reticence ami 
adventure, of chivalry ami a scorn of pain that seems to the superficial 
observer to verge on cruelty. The Romanesque of Segovia, Salamanca, 
Santiago tie Compostella is neither of Burgundy nor the Auvergne; the 
Gothic of Toledo and Seville and Cataluna is not the Gothic of 
the lie de France; the late and lovely work of men like Juan Gil de 
Hontanon has no kinship with Francois Tier nor with Flanders; the Baroque 
and Rococo of the XVI I th century have a richness and a virility that Italy 
cannot match. All the art is living, audacious, fearless, and beauty informs 
it in every part. The architecture of Spain is more supple and adaptable 
than any that 1 know, ami for this reason, if tor no other, it is peculiarly 
worth studying today.

SPANISH DOMESTIC ARCHITECTURE 

By Walter H. Kii.h u, I .A.I.A. 

In practically all countries during the Middle Ages, wars and up- 
risings were prevalent and the dwellings of the peaceful burghers, as 
well as those ot the fighting class, were designed to otter stiff re- 
sistance to attack from the outside. In Spain this tvpe persisted long 
after the manor houses of England and France had outgrown their fortress- 
like character and developed into modern types, much like those of the 
present time in respect to exterior openings and provision for light and air. 

In Spain, the typical houses continued to face inwards on a court or 
patio, leaving the street facades frequently almost blank as far as windows 
were concerned, and pierced by a single threat doorway treated with arch or 
lintel as the case might he, the stones of which were exaggerated in size 
beyond all structural importance. This doorway was closed bv massive 
oaken doors, studded with the ornamental heads ot ^reat iron bolts and 
fastened with a formidable lock. A dark passage called the "zaguan" led 
under the front block of the house to the patio. This was ordinarily paved 
with flags or cobbles and the heavy wooden beams were exposed above the 
ceiling. 

All the lite of the family went on in the patio. The living apartments 
were in the upper stories, the ground floor being reserved tor storage and 
service. A light and graceful gallerv was carried around at the second floor 
level, and another at the third floor it the mansion had one. This gallerv 
construction was usually carried out with columns and beams of stone — 
as at the Casa Polentina at Avila, or the Casa de Miranda at Burgos, but 
generallv stone pillars supported a wooden gallerv beam, the load being 
transmitted to the capitals by elaboratelv carved pillow blocks. Somewhere 
at the side or in the corner of the patio there was a capacious stairway, 
treated in the finer houses with a good deal ot elaboration. 

An interesting variant ot the lintel tvpe of patio is that which was 
adopted bv the architects of Palma de Mallorca where the courtyard walls 
of the high built palaces are carried on tour wide span, rather flat arches, 
resting on sturdy stone pillars at the corners. These splendid courtyards 
are further developed with magnificent stairways and graceful loggias in a 
more sophisticated manner than most of those on the mainland. 

The room plans were simple and ingenuous, consisting mostly of 
cubicles deriving air and light from the patio, and to some extent from the 
street or rear courts. 

In those important houses which had a third story, an open gallery or 
loggia at the top formed a significant and highly ornamental feature, where 
the ladies of the family could take the air tree from observation and the 
disturbances of the street. The Palacio de Monterey at Salamanca has one 
of the finest examples ot these but the Casa de Correos at Segovia contains 
a good illustration of this feature on a smaller scale. 



Iron balconies over the street came in time to be added, shaded by a 
curtain which allowed only a sidewise view, and these were (and are) much 
used by the dark-eyed Spanish ladies as a place lor needlework and maybe 
a surreptitious smile at the wandering architect who snaps his kodak in 
their direction. 

In the north of Spain the balconies are multiplied and enclosed with 
modern glass "miradors", sometimes several stories high, very comforta- 
ble but too reminiscent of American sleeping porches to be picturesque. 

The use of tiles, both plain and glazed, is an important detail of the 
Spanish house. These are used tor floors, stairs, dadoes, trim tor openings, 
kitchen shelving and everv conceivable purpose, the louder in pattern the 
better, and any one who is designing a house which is to be truly Spanish 
ought to bear this in mind, tor tiles are of the essence ot the subject. 

Characteristic elements ot Spanish facades are the enormous voussoirs, 
sometimes seven teet long, used tor arched portals, the similarly exaggerated 
stone lintels, and notably the enclosing label mouldings, sometimes extending 
up to include a window above, undoubtedly a legacy from the Moors, who 
always enclosed their ornament in a like manner. Generally most ot the 
decoration ot the facade was concentrated at the entrance, but there are a 
number ot houses such as the Casa de los Picos at Segovia, illustrated here- 
with, and the Casa tie las Conchas at Salamanca, whose fronts are treated 
with an all-over application ot bosses, shells or whatever, characteristic but 
not very beautiful. 

After enumerating all these ornaments, the most striking of all (and 
the most difficult of application to modern work) remains. I refer to the 
great escutcheons or coats of arms which tew Spanish houses lack. With 
no references to scale, these gorgeous affairs, sometimes a story high, and 
two or three of them to a house, are a true index ot the style. With 
them almost any house might be called Spanish; without them no house 
could truly be. They are traditional, indigenous and inimitable. 

The country houses and farms likewise possess great interest and are 
found in all sorts of materials, stone, stucco and halt-timber. The most 
fascinating types that I have seen are in the north, but they occur all 
through the country ami some of the best are in the Island of Mallorca. 
In most of them blank wall space is an important feature and very tew are 
supplied with windows to anything like the extent demanded in America. 

The kitchens, with their built in tiled stoves, great hoods, chimney 
seats and tiled shelves, are extremely picturesque and full of interest, and 
from a practical standpoint generally produce a better cooked meal than 
their American counterparts. 

As a field for sketching, Spain is almost unrivalled in its extent of un- 
worked territory, tor only a small part of its architectural treasures have 
been published; while the agreeable and hospitable nature of its inhabitants 
contributes greatly to the pleasure of a summer sojourn there.

Roof stained with Cabot's Creosote Stains. Walls ami Chimney finished 
with Cabot's Old Virginia While. Charles A. Piatt, Architect, New York. 

Cabot's Creosote Shingle Stains 

The original shingle stains, and the standard for forty years. Now made by our new colloidal process which makes pure 
pigments so microscopically fine that they penetrate like dyes. 

Cabot's Old Virginia White 

The clean, brilliant " whitewash white " effect of Old Virginia White has real distinction. As bright as new whitewash 

and as durable as paint, but does not look " painty." 

Cabot's Double-White 

A true white that is so opaque that two coats will cover any surface as completely as three coats of lead and oil paint. 
Whiter than paint, has no gloss, liquid and free flowing, easily applied, fine texture. 

Cabot's Waterproof Collopakes 

For tinting and waterproofing stucco, brick and woodwork. Soft, pastel-like tones. More fluid than paints; easier to 

apply lower in cost. 

Cabot's Insulating and Deadening Quilt 

Makes houses warmer in Winter and cooler in Summer. Saves its cost many times over in reducing fuel bills. 

Deadens sound in floors and partitions.

Just What "Frink" Stands 
For In The Lighting World 

IN case you too are under the impression 
' that Frink is the name of a reflector this 
will set you straight. 

Frink Is the sign of a Service. A Service 
that develops and sells ideas for unusual 
methods of electric illuminating. A Service 
that sells results. 

Incidentally we manufacture and deliver the 
equipment necessary to produce the results 
we sell. 

Starting before the days of electric lighting, 
for over 68 years this Service has been 
developed through hundreds of thousands 
of contracts. 

Frink Service reaches everywhere that 
electric lighting can be used. There Is 
seldom a job too small for it to be economi- 
cally employed. Certainly none is ever 
too large. 

At any time one of us would be glad to 
explain our Service more in detail, or confer 
with you over any lighting problem you 
may have.

Evidence — 

A Conclusive Kind 

\ KTER all is said and done, what we might say about 
•*■■ our greenhouses doesn't begin to say as much 
as the fact that so many neighbors build them. One 
seems to sell the other. 

For over 60 years, Architects have largely specified

they feel them to be the highest standard oi quality

Tapping a Cupola/' mural painting by Arthur Covey for the Kohler Co. Administra- 
tion Building, awarded gold medal of the Architectural League of New York at the In- 
ternational Exposition of Architecture and the Allied Arts, New York, April 20— May 2 




Bell Tower 

Kohler Administration 

Building 

The Kohler offices, the factory, the Vil- 
lage of Kohler, form a unique commu- 
nity, where neighborly interest and civic 
purpose find reflection m the quality of 
Kohler products — enameled plumbing 
ware and private electric plants 



FOR his "Tapping a Cupola" and for another panel, 
"Pouring a Mould, " Arthur Covey of New York 
received the Architectural League's gold medal for 
mural painting at the recent International Exposition. 

Both works were executed for Kohler Co. for their new 
administration building at Kohler, Wisconsin. This 
impressive building, designed by Brust and Philipp, 
Architects, of Milwaukee, is a unit in the notable de- 
velopment in community planning which is known as 
Kohler Village. 

A brochure describing this development will be gladly 
sent to architects and to others interested in commu' 
nity planning.

Ravine Par\, Village ofKohler 

Every child who lives in Kohler knows 
the unspoiled beauty of trees, flowers 
and running streams. This unusual vil- 
lage is the complement of the quality of 
Kohler products — enameled plumbing 
ware and private electric plants 



MATCHED beauty! When both bath and 
lavatory are of Kohler Enameled Plumb' 
ing Ware, they match perfectly in color, tex' 
ture, and grace of line. 

Kohler Ware is remarkable for its uniformity of 
color — for an immaculate snowy whiteness that 
says "Kohler 1 '' almost as plainly as the faint 
blue lettering fused into the enamel of every 
fixture. 

Kohler lavatories are worthy of the finest bath' 
rooms. With a wealth of patterns from which 
to choose, it is easy to find the pattern to in- 
sure for every installation the matched beauty 
that is so much to be desired.

Made of extra quality stock, carefully inspected and guaranteed free from all imperfections of 
braid or finish. Can be distinguished at a glance by our trade mark, the Colored Spots, used 
only with this quality. 

By using Samson Spot Cord you can assure your clients of uninterrupted service for twenty-five 
years or more. You will also protect them from the annoyance and expense of breaking cords. 
which will quickly begin if they use ordinary roughly braided cord. 

Samson Spot Cord does not contain the large or loaded centre often found in common cord, which 
increases the weight and price per foot and greatly decreases the durability over pulleys. 

The difference in cost between Samson Spot Cord and the cheapest kind is small in comparison 
with the expense of replacing one broken cord.

ZERO would tie up the water supply, endanger human 
life, and paralyze business were it not for modern 
heating systems. 

The urge of business cannot permit the weather to dis- 
organize its activities. A superior, dependable heating 
system gives its owners a tremendous advantage. 

The H. B. Smith Co. boilers and radiators constitute 
such a system. They pay dividends where zero, or even 
weather of lesser severity, sometimes rules. 

Moreover, they maintain high performance over a wide 
arc of demand. They carry the emergency load easily.

Expression 

In Textured Walls 



The modern architect selects rough surfaces to interpret his 
conceptions of interior and exterior wall treatment because only 
in texture can perfect expression be attained. 

In Textone and Oriental Stucco, products of the United States Gypsum 

Company, the architect finds materials lending themselves to surfacing and 

tinting in a degree which assures (even with unskilled labor) interior and exterior 

walls that provide in color and texture a perfect complement to architectural design. 

A knowledge of the possibilities of Textone and Oriental Stucco and a realization of the 
absolute dependence which can be placed upon these materials will prove of advantage 
to every architect. Your request for literature will be welcomed.

the ultimate Fuel 



NOTHING BURNS BUT GAS so, wherever hard fuel is used a gas- 
making plant is in operation, and the valuable by-products of com- 
bustion are lost. For this reason, if for no other, Gas must eventually 
supplant raw fuels for all purposes where heat is required. However, there 
are other economic reasons whv Gas is the ideal Home Fuel and should, 
therefore, be recommended in the architect's plans. 



House Heating with Gas means ab- 

— solute thermostatic 

control because gas heat is continuously uni- 
form. Its quality is unvarying. The supply 
is reliable and the flow perfectly controllable. 
Gas Fuel furnishes clean heat. No soot, coal 
dirt, smoke or ash dust. Xo ashes to be 
carried out and hauled away. Xo blackened 
walls or dirty basements. Gas Fuel is most 
satisfactory of all from the Householder's 
viewpoint. 



Auxiliary Heating by Gas Fuel is 

: — the most con- 
venient method. Auxiliary Gas Heating 
appliances are now so well designed and 
beautiful in appearance as to be appropriate 
for any room in the home and any decorative 
scheme. They are a necessity for spring and 
fall home comfort as well as for extreme 
winter weather. 



suc- 
ac- 



Hot Water Heating can be 

_ cessfully 

complished only with the use of a Gas Water 
Heater. By this means the home has Hot 
Water instantly available from every hot 
water tap — in Laundry, Kitchen, Bathroom 
— at all times. The wide variety of Gas 
Hot Water Heaters permits the architect to 
arrange his hot water installation to suit the 
character of the plan and the cost of the 
house or other building. 

Gas for Industrial Use 1S tne 

_ clean- 
est, most controllable and satisfactory fuel 
wherever heat is required. It is fast becoming 
the preferred fuel in Hotels, Restaurants, 
Bakeries; Coffee Roasting, Enameling, Metal- 
lurgical and a thousand-and-one other manu- 
facturing plants. There is hardly a business 
requiring heat for any purpose to which Gas 
Fuel may not be profitably applied.

THE IDEAL Type A Boiler and Corto Radi- 
ators," answers Albert M. Wolf, of Wolf, 
Sexton, Harper and Trueax, Chicago Engi- 
neers and Architects. 

"The Type A Heat Machine installed in my 
residence excels in economy of operation any 
other boiler I have had occasion to operate," 
he continues. "I have used Corto Radiators 
throughout; it is the logical choice for a resi- 
dence, combining fine appearance and grace 
with high efficiency." 

Most architects and engineers agree with 



this. IDEAL Type A and Corto Radiators 
appeal to their sense of beauty. 

But performance is even more important. 
The revertible flues of Type A, its tight-fit- 
ting doors, water- surrounded ashpit and 
fire-pot, and automatic damper control, 
give maximum efficiency. Corto, because of 
its slender, graceful columns, occupies a 
third less floor space than the ordinary 
radiator and heats up more quickly. 

Send for the Type A and Corto books that 
give the full facts.
